“The environment is bright and welcoming, and staff use both the indoor and outdoor areas skilfully to provide children with a stimulating range of activities to help them to learn.” (Ofsted 2017)
Our Nursery is school-based so it has access to all of the main school resources including trim trails, a newly developed woodland area and technology facilities. Our Early Years Department, however, also has its own designated outdoor area which includes a wide variety of resources to stimulate learning and development such as a mud kitchen, an outdoor reading area and much more!
The Early Years children are guided by the adults to take responsibility for the school garden. This includes growing flowers and vegetables, creating bug houses and developing a concern for the environment through ensuring plants are regularly watered and cared for. Independence is promoted within daily routines where children are encouraged to work together to tidy up and respect their environment.
